It's the ReFlux: A look back at July for HPI!

Fri, 5th August 2016


#RetailersFirst! Home runs next...

Hello again!
Well, from re-signing our own All-Star drifter to supplying 100’s of RS4 Sport 3 Drift cars for the Major League Baseball Fan Fest, to meeting with dozens of hobby stores to talk about how we can make HPI better for you, July was a pretty big month for HPI!
In our first RE:FLUX newsletter, we told you about our mission to rebuild the HPI Racing brand from the ground up and that our immediate priority in the coming months is not just to launch new products, but more importantly to take care of our existing fans. Making sure you can get spare parts to keep your HPI car on the track (or in the air!) is our number one priority right now... Well, today we can tell you that during July we shipped over 320,000 spare parts around the world! Trust us that is a LOT of spares! But we aren’t taking a breather - we’re working 24/7 to return HPI Racing  back to being the BEST in the world for spares and support!
Another of the key elements that makes HPI Racing awesome is our big name partners, and none more so than World Champion drifter and Monster Energy athlete Vaughn Gittin Jr.! Vaughn’s signature HPI RC cars have been hugely popular over the years, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to simply continue churning out the same formula, no way! We’ve been in the ideas lab for months, brainstorming with professional fun-haver VGJR and his RTR crew, and we’re stoked with how our combined masterplan is looking! Vaughn’s re-signing will mean epic new products and rad contests in the coming months and years!
In July, HPI was at the heart of an entirely different ball game - with the Falken Tires crew at the infamous Major League Baseball Fan Fest! A five-day event, attended by thousands of baseball fans during the Major League All-Star weekend in San Diego, California. Over 10,000 fans got to try their hand at drifting an HPI RS4 Sport 3 Drift on an awesome scale track built by Super G Drift.
Finally, we want to give our biggest shout-out to all the hobby store owners and staff we met at the HobbyTown convention in Lincoln, Nebraska! The theme of the event was #RetailersFirst, which is something really close to our hearts. In fact, HPI firmly believes that visiting your local hobby store is the ultimate way to get the most out of your HPI purchase! After all, what could be more effective than putting your HPI pride and joy in the hands of an expert to quickly diagnose an issue or find out how to make your HPI product perform even better? You can find your nearest store here, why not visit today and say "Hi" from us!
